More than 90% of kindergarten children stayed home or were put in other forms of care as kindergartens in Slovenia officially closed with the exception of urgent daycare. Municipalities are organising urgent daycare in different ways.
While all public kindergartens in Ljubljana remain open and are not asking for any proof of urgency, some municipalities are asking for notes from employers and are giving priority to parents in so called essential professions. Only 9% of the usual number of children was recorded in Ljubljana’s 23 public kindergartens. The principal of the Galjevica kindergarten Barbara Novinec told the STA this “shows parents are behaving responsibly”.
